Home Networking For Dummies 4th Edition

MC Rebbe reviews Home Networking For Dummies 4th Edition in The Technofile

Make no Mistake, Networking For Dummies will teach you everything you need to know about networking in clear simple terms, but if all you need to do is to connect together a couple of home (or even office) PCs, so that you can share files and maybe an internet connection or a printer, then it might be overkill, as you really don’t need to know how to create an intranet or have TCP/IP demystified.

Networking For Dummies 8th Edition

Networking For Dummies 8th Edition reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe

Recently, I was chatting to my friend the Doctor (of computer science) and happened to mention that I’d just read Networking for Dummies. His response? “If you’ve read Networking For Dummies, you know more about networking than me,” which can only mean one of two things, either this book is excellent, or educational standards in this country have sunk even lower than I thought. If you want to find out which, read on. Continue reading “Networking For Dummies 8th Edition”

Adobe Creative Suite 3 – World Exclusive Preview!

Adobe Creative Suite 3 world exclusive preview by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi

Those of you who read my blog will know that at the end of January, I spent half a day at an exclusive press event (and a further half day at a follow up event a couple of weeks ago). Since both events were under Non Disclosure Agreement, I was unable to say anything more until now…when I can exclusively reveal that they were previews of Adobe’s Creative Suite 3, which will be formerly announced today. Continue reading “Adobe Creative Suite 3 – World Exclusive Preview!”

Sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours by Dick Oliver and Michael Morrison

sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiWhen I first saw the title of this book, I was pretty sceptical. After all, I’ve seen numerous similarly titled books in the past, which promise to teach a complex technology in a short space of time and which generally fail to deliver. You know the ones I mean, you see them in the computer section of bookshops…each one is about one thousand pages long, packed full of dense text and entitled something like ‘Learn Oracle During Lunchtime’…or ‘Design and Build a Supercomputer in 3 and a half Minutes’. Fortunately though, unlike those others, this book actually succeeds in delivering on its promises.

Adobe Releases Photoshop CS3 Beta

This year, Christmas is coming early, courtesy of Adobe, who have decided to release a public beta version of Photoshop 3. According to the company, this is to “enable customers to more easily transition to the latest hardware platforms, particularly Apple’s new Intel-based systems.”

You can download the beta, which is available as a Universal Binary for Macs or as a Windows XP/Vista compatible version, from http://labs.adobe.com, but in order to be able to do so, you’ll need a serial number from either Adobe Photoshop CS2, Adobe Creative Suite® 2, Adobe Creative Suite Production Studio, Adobe Design Bundle, Adobe Web Bundle or Adobe Video Bundle. If you don’t have a serial, you can still download the software, but it will expire after two days. Whether or not you have a serial, you’ll need to register online with Adobe or have an existing Adobe.com membership account to access the download.

Adobe claim that Photoshop CS3 is “packed with new features,”  including a pre-release version of a major upgrade to Adobe Bridge and the brand new ‘Adobe Device Central’, which, Adobe  say, can be used to “design, preview and test compelling mobile content, created specifically for smaller screens.” 
Though Adobe say there will still be some surprises in store when the final version is released, you’ll have to wait ‘till a yet unnamed date in Spring 2007 to find out what they are.

Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium

Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiOn 4th April 2005, at 12pm precisely, The Technofile delivered a world exclusive preview of Adobe’s Creative Suite 2, based upon very late official beta software. Since then the code’s gone gold master, the product’s shipped and the verdict’s in…and it’s a good one…in fact the best, because not only does CS2 deliver some excellent new functionality; thanks to Adobe’s vision of a ‘unified design environment’…which is not just a sound bite…but also a sound byte…CS2 offers far tighter integration of its constituent parts than ever before.

Teach Yourself Visually Flash MX 2004

Teach Yourself Visually Flash MX 2004 reviewed by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi in The Technofile“Are you a visual learner? Do you prefer instructions that show you how to do something and skip the long winded explanations? If so then this book is for you,” claim the publishers…and as it turns out, they are right…not that I have an objection to long winded explanations…after all…I am a rabbi…long winded explanations are part of my religion…though not a part of The Technofile…but if you like me are sick of having to read hundreds of pages of text every time you want to learn how to use a new application, then this book is definitely the answer.
